As the Tennessee Titans continue their search to find their new head coach, it is believed that Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will be one of the favorites to fill the vacancy left by Mike Munchak.
The Titans have yet to interview Quinn, but they are expected to do so whenever the Seahawks playoff run comes to an end.
Regardless of when the interview takes place, Quinn is expected to be a finalist for the job.
From Adam Schefter of ESPN:
Titans owner Tommy Smith said to be “smitten with Seattle” so much that Seahawks DC Dan Quinn expected to be finalist before he interviews.

With the help of Quinn, the Seahawks have the best defense in the NFL and it is easy to see why the Titans would be interested in bringing him on board.
Prior to joining Seattle, Quinn was the defensive coordinator at the University of Florida. He also has nearly a decade of experience as a defensive line coach at the collegiate and professional level.
